20 Flirty Emojis to Tease In Your Texts & Leave Them Thinking of You

The world has gone digital and so has flirting. Gone are the days of in-person “hi, how are you,” and in are the days of flirty emojis!

Flirty Emojis

When you first start texting someone, it’s hard to navigate the world of subtle flirting and teasing. And flirty emojis?! It’s hard to even know when and where to start using those!

Should you use an emoji when you first text them? Should you use flirty emojis often? Or should you use it once and back off? Or the biggest confusion of all, what should you do if you’re using flirty emojis and the person you’re texting isn’t using any at all?!

As much as text flirting feels like a maze, it can all become relatively simple if you know how to do it right. And thankfully, we have flirty emojis to help us express our feelings in a clear way and flirt our way into somebody’s heart.

Why flirty emojis can save your texting game

First things first, why use a flirty emoji at all? Surely they’re just a little childish? Well, yes, if you use more emojis than alphabets in a text! But when used correctly, emojis can make you look fun, hilarious even, and can save your dating blushes.

Sometimes it’s easy to have nothing to say, especially when you’re flirting with someone you like. You can’t get your words out, everything you say seems lame, and the other person just doesn’t get the real you.

However, throw in a suitable emoji and you don’t have to use words, because the emoji speaks for you!

One rule though – don’t overdo it! Seriously, nobody wants to have a conversation where they need to decipher a full sentence through the use of emojis.

Unless they’re into cryptic texts, Egyptian hieroglyphs, or a game of charades, using too many emojis can make you look a bit dumb. And when you overdo it, that’s when emojis become childish too.

However, when used sparingly and well, they’re a fantastic conversational tool. [Read: How to flirt with a guy over text – Every single thing you need to know]

Since emojis became popular, crafting flirty text messages, and every other text message for that matter, has become a million times easier—and a lot more fun! [Read: 44 tips and examples to flirt with a girl over text and leave her smiling]

Adding a simple emoji to a line of text changes the entire meaning of the phrase. It’s really quite amazing. For those of you hopeless at flirting, like myself, flirting via text could be your strength! To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of the top flirty emojis that will have you sending flirty texts like nobody’s business.

1. Winking face 😉

C’mon, people. You know how much a winky face changes a phrase. You could say something as simple as “Meet me at Wal-Mart later,” and it’s completely acceptable.

But once you add a winky face to that, it becomes “Meet me at Wal-Mart later 😉” and all of a sudden your evening just became a little more exciting. [Read: Fun emojis couples need to use more often]

2. Winking kiss 😘

Again, with the wink! The winky kiss flirty emoji makes things a little less seductive, and a whole lot more cute and sweet.

This shows your warm and kind side, and likely has the recipient smiling at their phones or saying “awwwww.” The winky kiss—always a good idea.

3. Heart eyes 😍

This one is pretty obvious, no? It’s basically saying they are so happy/into you that their love is explosive—even out of their eyes. Of course, you can also use this emoji when talking about sushi or avocado toast, so it’s pretty diverse. Food and love are interchangeable anyways, let’s be honest.

4. See no evil 🙈

This adorable, flirty little monkey emoji is just that: adorable. This can be used after saying something cute, that might make you or the recipient blush.

It adds an extra bit of “awwww” to the conversation, which is always a great addition to a flirty conversation.

5. Smirking face 😏

This one has the same effect as the winky face, but it’s a little less bold. It’s sort of seductive with an air of mystery to it.

Use this emoji when you want the recipient to read between the lines of your text. This is a great flirty emoji and adds spice to your conversations. [Read: 30 subtle, obvious, and really sexy flirting tips for girls]

6. Laughing crying 🤣 or 😂

Let’s just be honest, people like to think they are funny, even if they really aren’t. If you are into somebody, you will laugh at their jokes—every single painful joke they tell.

This emoji is the best flirty emoji to use because it probably expresses laughter better than the rest – you’re literally crying from laughing so hard. If you haven’t started flirting yet, this is an easy way to initiate flirty emojis in your text conversation.

It’s the equivalent of saying LMFAO, which used to be hugely popular for whatever reason? We’re not the internet police, we’re just saying.

7. Rosy cheeks smile ☺️ or 😊 or 😌

By far, this is a subtle and sweet flirty emoji, and you can use it in all your conversations, even if they aren’t flirty conversations.

This emoji is a sweet, joyful one to be used in any context. But it leaves the recipient wondering if you mean “smiling” or “blushing” or something else… hmmm. [Read: 44 flirty tricks to text your crush and get them interested in you]

8. Waving hand 👋

This might sound strange, but for some reason, it’s a goofy emoji to use, especially for men. It brings a smile to the other person’s face, maybe even a slight laugh. It’s cute and harmless. If used in the right context, it’ll leave the other person thinking!

9. Two hearts 💕

A nice variation of the traditional red heart. This catches the recipient’s eye and gives them warm feelings towards you.

It is the emoji version of saying “I’m thinking about you” and/or “I care about you.” This is another sweet emoji. [Read: Colorful heart emojis – How to decode their meaning & use it right]

10. Sassy girl 💁‍♀️

We don’t know what it is, but when a guy sends this flirty emoji, they usually get a girl’s attention. It’s goofy and silly and that is what girls like.

This could potentially work for a female to send as well, depending on the context, but without a doubt, females like to receive this text emoji along with a sassy statement about them!

11. Tongue 😜 < 😋 < 👅

This emoji definitely is used in flirty conversations but tends to be more on the intense spectrum. It falls more into the sexting category.

The first kind is goofy, the second slips into slightly yummy territory, and the third one is right there in deep sexual territory! Whatever the message you want to get across with your flirty emojis, use these *and use it wisely!*. [Read: 20 naughty text messages that are assured to start a naughty conversation]

12. Peach 🍑

They like your BOOTY! This is a clear sign they dig your body, specifically your behind. Take it how you want, but they are totally into you.

13. Drooling face 🤤

They’re into you, they can’t stop salivating at the thought of you! It’s a bit bold, that’s for sure, but it certainly gets the point across. *especially in response to a sexy selfie!*

If you send this to someone, it’s one of the most flirty emojis out there and sure to leave them with no doubt about what’s on your mind. [Read: Seductive selfies – 34 best sexy selfie poses and tips to show yourself off]

14. Crazy face 🤪

It’s fun, it’s flirty, and it shows that you don’t take yourself too seriously. If you send this after you’ve said something slightly sarcastic or funny, it gets the real meaning over and makes you look fun and cute. Isn’t that the whole point of sending flirty emojis and texts in the first place?

15. Hungry face 😋

What are they hungry for? That’s what you’ll think if you receive this flirty emoji! If you send it, make sure you keep it in the right context, they may just think you’re ready for lunch and totally misread the sexy meaning of your original text!

The good thing about this one is that it’s multifunctional and that gives you plenty of options for flirting. [Read: How to tell if a guy likes you through texting – 20 no-fail signs]

16. Aubergine 🍆

Yes, we had to go there. Let’s be honest, it’s one of the most commonly used emojis and it has a very direct and sexual meaning.

This is probably beyond flirty emojis and into the realms of full-on sexual but if that’s where your flirting is going and you don’t think they’re going to be offended, go for it! Want to take it even further, add a well placed water droplets emoji and everyone will know what you have in mind! 💦

17. Sweat droplets 😅 or 🥵

Bear with me on this one. It all comes down to context. If you send this when you tell them how hot you think they are, you’re showing them that you’re sweating at the thought of them. Sexy, no?

You can also use it as a joking emoji when it’s hot, when you’ve been to the gym, or when you’re simply talking about the weather!

18. Speak no evil 🙊

We’ve already had the cute monkey with his hands over his eyes; this one is his sibling! Speak no evil is a cute monkey with his hands over his mouth, like he’s just said something he shouldn’t have, or something that was a bit flirty and he’s worried he’s been caught out.

It’s the perfect flirty emoji to choose after saying something naughty or flirty and you’re not sure how they’ll respond. Or if you just want to say something flirty and cover it up with a cute emoji.

19. Sunshine face 🌞

You can use this one in several ways but “hello sunshine” with this emoji is a great way to open up a flirty text to someone you’re crushing on. Also, everyone likes the sun, right? You can’t really go wrong with this one. [Read: 25 fun and cute ways to say ‘hi’ in a text message in a casual way]

20. Okay sign 👌

Out of all the flirty emojis we’ve talked about so far, this one has the most potential for different uses.

You can use it to literally say ‘okay,’ or you can use it to say that you think they’re fine. It’s also fun and takes the seriousness out of a situation. Keep this one in your ‘most used’ list of flirty emojis, especially if you’ve just started texting someone!
